The development of organic supply chains that drive fair, transparent and healthy options for the consumer.

The organic food supply system in Europe must rank among one of the most important in terms of trust. Citizens make purchasing choices around organic food based on a wide range of issues which include sustainability, ethics, food safety and nutrition. On a global basis the amount of fraud occurring in the organic supply system is growing rapidly and issues are appearing on a weekly basis. The potential to totally undermine citizen trust in organic food is a real and present danger. We have an enormous opportunity though EIT-food to implement a number of cutting-edge technologies that will make the organic food system must more resilient to fraud, much more transparent and drive the safety and micro-nutritional aspects of the system.

CIM will: (i) develop product specific (i.e. beef, vegetables) supply chain maps showing supply network structure, along with the flow of material, resources and consumption patterns; (ii) explore opportunities for modelling of supply chains using near-real time digital information based on available data triggers within the data platform, and the introduction of digital technologies to support enhanced product integrity and transparency; (iii) capture latest data from digital technology pilots in support of the business case for digitalisation of supply chains.
